Someone with a degree in Anthropology actually has many options.  You might be empolyed by a university, government agency, museum, park, historic site, or physical anthropology lab.  Take a look at the following links for ideas.

Honestly, the only job I have ever seen as somebody who bachelored in Anthropology was as a professor at a college.

However, if you were to get a bachelors in Psychology, you'd probably be better off.

Try a different major. I have a BA in Anthropology, and I can't find work.

Well, aside from an anthropologist you would have to get creative with your knowledge in the degree.  I have a degree in sociology and anthropology and I am a teacher. Because it is such a well rounded degree (you will learn about sociology, mathmatics, biology, technology, economics and religion) you will be able to use this degree in many areas.  I always make sure I mention this during interviews...and have always gotten positive feedback. 

 Good Luck!

With an anthropology degree you can attain a job with the local government or local police as a CSI operative as a forensic analyst. However, you can also teach, participate in research, participate in film & documentaries.There are an abundance of jobs that require the skills of an anthropology major.
